The five startups have been screened and selected by the CFA Team to pitch their ideas at the April Edition of the CFA’s Startups Hangout which will hold tomorrow at Adna Hotel, GRA, Ikeja.
The winner at the pitch session will have a one-one-one with CFA.
The CFA’s Startups Hangout which has run for three consecutive without any pitch exercise will host one this month and it is designed to further add value to Startups who attend each month’s session of the Hangout.
Meanwhile, Helen Anatogu, CEO, iDea Nigeria and Yele Okeremi, CEO, Precise Financial Systems, will speak with entrepreneurs on how startups can develop that super confident quality that would drive their business.
“Building Confidence” is the theme for April Edition, and the two calibre speakers invited for the hangout will clearly pass the knowledge to attendees, just as other speakers had done justice to the previous events.
“Young Russians were protesting recently. They took to the streets in defiance of the stern warning issued out by the authorities in their country. That was a similar situation to what became known as the Arab Spring.
The lesson I took away from this, is that we must engage our young minds in every way possible to keep them out of this kind of situation, Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata, TV Presenter at Channels TV said in a blog post.
“If you are reading this and over 40 and fairly successful, I will love to ask you what you are doing to make a difference in the lives of young people? Whether we accept it or not, the reality is that we are sitting on a keg of gunpowder with the number of idle young minds that are parading our various streets.
“This is basically why my team and I decided to make a conscious effort to put together CFA’s Startups Hangout, a monthly event, not minding the fact that it is pretty much a tall order bankrolling it every month.
We are, however, excited to see that we are creating a movement that is capable of catapulting a few Startups to the next level. We are sure that we can achieve more with monthly partnership and sponsorship of the program to take it to even higher levels,” CFA said.
